Arzak – San Sebastian

Our evening in restaurant Arzak in San Sebastian was the best michelin star experience we ever had.

Babo’s burgers – Leuven

Burgerbars are popping up in Leuven. You just tried a new one, and there’s another one. Babo’s burger bar just opened so we gave it a try. The staff was very friendly, and we had a really nice evening. The place was full, but it feels like there was room to add more tables. Being…

Kødbyens Fiskebar – Copenhagen

Must go.! 🙂 No frills wabi-sabi kind of place. Fast, warm and friendly staff.  The exterior doesn’t look fancy. We’re in the meat district here. Urban, young and a bit raw. Bur don’t hold back. Go in and enjoy. Lunch menu in Kødbyens Fiskebar is short and looks delicious. The wine list is impressive.  We…

Le Deuxième Ă©lĂ©ment – Brussels

You know the Thai restaurants that serve the real stuff, the authentic Thai food? If so, you probably also know the Thai restaurants that create new Thai dishes. They use local flavors or experiment in many ways.  It’s not always easy to find the first ones, nor find a good one of the latter in…

Humphrey – Brussels

When the sous-chef of Noma (once the best restaurant in the world according to several ‘lists’) comes to your hometown and opens a restaurant ,you book the first table you can get. At least that’s what I did when I read the news. We went on a Monday evening in the 2nd or 3rd week…

Bangkok – Nahm

Locals and websites we had checked for references, told us going to Nahm is a great idea. It is the 5th best restaurant in Asia. So we entered the restaurant with very high expectations. Unfortunately, we ended the meal a bit dissapointed. The interior was ok, a bit dark, but cosy. Nothing special. Although the…

L’Ă©picerie du cirque – Antwerp

A lot of people told us about this place and they were right, this is a gem in Antwerp. Small and cosy Scandinavian decor, young and friendly staff and definitely a michelin star food experience. We went there for lunch and had some amazing dishes: oysters with sauce Hollandaise, watercress and edible flowers on jackknife…

Berns Asiatiska – Stockholm

Great asian food in an authentic nineteen century hall. They serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and brunch but we only got the opportunity to taste dinner.  If you want to enjoy good Asian classics (spring rolls, tempura, sushi, dumplings) in a fancy setting, than this is the place to go in Stockholm. It’s a…

Balls&Glory – Leuven

The name says it all. This restaurant promises slow food with fast service and they deliver on their promise. Exquisite meat/chicken/veggie balls filled with seasonal flavours on top of ‘stoemp’, mashed potatoes and vegetables, or salad, surrounded by two deliscious sauses. Only the sauses always stay the same, and for a good reason because they…

Porte 12 – Paris

The chef has travelled the world and it shows in everything at Porte 12. The staff, the clientelle, the food, the winelist and even the decor comes from all over the globe. To be honest it is 1 level below David Toutain but so is the pricetag. This guy knows his vegetables. His carottes and…

David Toutain – Paris

Getting a table at David Toutin is hard. We were on the waiting list for a couple of weeks and finally got THE call. As you enter you immediately get influences from all around the globe: Staff and clientelle from varied backgrounds, ecclectic decor with hints from scandinavia, asia and even paintings from the chef’s…

Clamato – Paris

We just found our new favorite spot in Paris: Clamato! Again you can expect a line as they don’t take reservations but you must, MUST, wait! You will be served the best fish dishes you have ever tasted. This is the epithome of bistronomy! Simple and affordable dishes in a warm and cozy athomosphere but…
